When staying at hotel was told by reception that a small deposit would be accrued per nights stay which is fine, was then charged one nights stay up front while having 2 nights booked, when checking out was told 1st nights stay that was charged was actually the holding deposit despite what i was told when checking in. As the deposit was already charged to my account and to be refunded i still had to pay for the full amount instead of just docking the bill minus one night as it was already charged, plus mini bar, breakfast etc etc. Parking was unpleasant and i was charged obscene amounts of money for both nights, both nights parking were different amounts charged while the parking sign infront of parking garage says xx.xx flat rate per night. Overall Hotel was nice staff pleasant but was told wrong information checking in and checking out which is enough for me not to book again with Sofitel.

I booked a king size bed and when i arrived I was told i had been "upgraded". I was on my own but I was put into a room with two double beds - neither of which were long enough for me to sleep comfortably on. If I wanted to sleep in a double bed I would have booked a double bed. I book a king size bed due to my height, and being upgraded to two beds when you are on your own is NOT an upgrade. I was then charged for mini bar that I never had (thats happened a number of times at this hotel now).
